taliban and other such terrorists groups. saudi arabia was one of three countries in the world to recognize and support the taliban-led government in afghanistan until the 9/11 attacks. it is also a major player in pakistan, now home to most of the world's deadliest terrorists. the country's former law minister told a german news agency that there was no doubt that saudi arabia was supporting groups throughout the country. ever since al qaeda attacked in 2003, the saudis have stamped down on islamic terrorism at home but not ended support for clerics or militants abroad. during the iraq war, much of the support for sunni jihadies came from saudi sources. a pattern that continues in syria today. saudi officials have expressed dismay at president obama's policies in syria and iran, but its objections are not framed by humanitarian concerns for people of those countries. instead they are rooted in a shia ideology. remember the house is sunni. all other versions of islam has been treated as heresy. you see the regime fears that any kind of empowerment of the shia anywhere could emb
